Colin Cowherd continues to try and rain on the Cleveland Browns parade as he again brought them up on his show while saying they will ‘crash hard’ in the playoffs
FS1 host Colin Cowherd was at it again. Apparently bothered by Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku‘s excitement to work with Odell Beckham, Jr., Cowherd said the tight end was like “a teenage girl on Instagram.” From there, he decided to predict what will happen to the team in 2019 during his Monday edition of “The Herd.”
As has been the case with Cowherd all offseason, he gave a few small compliments to the team before pointing out what he doesn’t like about them. The brash host said they will be dynamic, they will intimidate some teams and should get some blowout wins. He then said they will talk a lot — something that bothers him unless he’s doing the talking.
From there, Cowherd went on to call Baker Mayfield “prone to mistakes” and reminded his viewers that they don’t have an “elite coach.” Even after saying all that, Cowherd seems to think they will make the playoffs, but says once there the Browns will “crash hard.”
"“”And then, the playoffs come. And young wins do not win the AFC. They don’t. Peyton Manning did, Tom Brady did — they don’t win the AFC. And they’re going to crash hard.” — Cowherd via Ben Axelrod of WKYC.com"
The criticism is expected at this point. Cowherd has become quite the Grinch in regards to the Browns as he continually wants to point out what he doesn’t like — and a lot of times that leads to him targeting Mayfield, OBJ, and head coach Freddie Kitchens.
It seems this all started when the Browns drafted Mayfield first overall, which went against Cowherd’s narrative. According to the sports pundit, Mayfield shouldn’t be drafted. Since that was the opposite of what he predicted, he went on the attack and has gone after everyone in the organization and even the city, picking on their “low self-esteem.”
At this point, it seems as if he’s just reaching for things to be critical of because there was nothing about Njoku’s comments that should have led us down this new rabbit hole.
